XP service pack 2

Will I be notified to install sp2 when it comes in? I've enabled automatic downloads. Will I notice it downloading in the background? Should it be here yet?

If you have Windows Update enabled you should be receiving SP-2 by now. I found it in Windows Update for myself. Your Windows Update settings, if enabled, determine wheather it will auto update, notify you or do nothing. Check your settings.

If still unsure go to Windows Update and see if it is available. You can manually download if desired.

Good luck!
